For example, if your SIP date is 21st of each month and for instance this month’s 21st day is falling on Saturday then your SIP will be executed on 23rd day which will be Monday if there is no holiday that day. In case it is a government declared public holiday on Monday then this will be executed on 24th day which will be Tuesday and so on. Thus, it will be executed in next working day only.
